What's Happening at The Arc Dane County
Dane County's First
Wings for All® Event -
See the Photos
The Arc Dane County's first annual Wings for All® event, held on October 20, 2018, at Dane County Regional Airport was a stunning success.  Helping to make travel accessible to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities can open worlds of opportunity and learning for everyone.  We are so proud to lead the way in our area.  This event would not have been possible without the support of our tremendous partners, sponsors, volunteers, photographers and financial contributors.

2018 Annual Halloween Dance Success!
The Arc Dane County's 2018 Halloween Dance was a great success!  All of our members and guests danced the afternoon away dressed in their best costumes. 

We couldn't have created an afternoon like this without the help of some very special partners.  A big THANK YOU goes out to:
  • Pooley's - the host with the most
  • DJ Bob Halle - the music master
  • Miller and Sons Grocery - keeping everyone in in healthy treats
  • And, our incredible volunteers from Memorial High School, Verona High School, and Waunakee High School

With Sorrow in Our Hearts
It is with great sorrow that we share the news that two of the victims murdered in the shooting that took place at a Pittsburgh synagogue were members of The Arc's extended family. Cecil and David Rosenthal were served in the residential program of ACHIEVA/The Arc of Greater Pittsburgh.  Read ACHIEVA’s announcement about this tragic loss and an article about the Rosenthal brothers .  
The Arc Dane County stands in solidarity in support of the Jewish community and against anti-Semitism and all forms of hatred and hate crimes in our society.
